Apple cider vinegar could be considered as one of nature’s perfect foods
Pure organic apple cider vinegar (ACV) should be unpasteurised, of a rich, brownish colour and have a heavy pungent odour.
When held up to the light you should see a formation of cob-web like substance floating in it.
Do not worry as this is a natural substance called “mother”.
This substance contains living nutrients and bacteria which settle in the bottom of the bottle, just like sediment.
It contains powerful enzymes and important minerals.
There is also natural malic acid (in grapes too), very useful for fighting body toxins.
Please do not confuse cider vinegar with malt vinegar.
Malt vinegar is refined and processed, containing none of the above natural qualities.
Drinking cider does not have beneficial effects on health either, as it is also very acidic.
Too much toxic acid in the body can cause an array of problems such as migraines, bronchitis and diverticulitis.
Anything with ‘itis’ is an inflammation of a particular organ.
Malt vinegar is very acidic and could make any inflammation worse.
